Hi @tungduon1710 !

I have edited the title of your post.
Please avoid placing links in the title since we cannot click on them.

Open up the secrets tab and place the key(MESSAGE_STYLE) and value(uppercase)
inside and click add new secret.

Thank you . But when i I write my code like this :

app.get("/json", function(req, res) {
if(process.env.MESSAGE_STYLE === “uppercase”){
res.json( message = “Hello json”.toUpperCase());
} else {
res.json( message = “Hello json”);
It said I’m wrong. Can you explain about this ?

you need to give back an object in the form {"message": "Hello json"} like in the previous challenge (
not just a string
